This renowned camp has been totally rebuilt in 2017 and sits in the magical heart of the Okavango Delta. A matrix of palm-dotted islands, flood plains and woodland, the 77,000 hectare private reserve typifies the region’s unique landscape.
Duba Plains Camp has 5 bespoke tents, in addition to a separate 2 bedroom suite aptly named the Duba Plains Suite, all designed by Dereck Joubert to fit into the forest and to take advantage of the shapes and textures of shade, but also to evoke the old classic African safari style of the 1920’s.
All the rooms are raised on recycled railway sleeper decking offering guests amazing views of the surrounding floodplain. Each tent has a lounge area, with place to write and do your photographic downloads, as well as the opportunity for private dining in your tent. Each guest tent offers a private verandah plus beautifully appointed en-suite facilities consisting of flush loo, double basins and indoor and outdoor showers and luxurious baths. Ceiling fans, an environmentally friendly air-conditioning system over the guests bed, and careful tent design maintain a comfortable climate for rest and relaxation.
Guests will be able to enjoy their own private plunge pool and outdoor under cover sala/day rest area. The main area consists of a large raised dining room, and comfortable lounge with private dining areas, wine cellar and library, with ample space for guests to either get away and be private or be all together if they want to. Guests staying at the Duba Plains Suite automatically enjoy the services of a private game drive vehicle with their own guide as well as a private butler and chef. The camp’s centre-point is the gathering place of all bush experiences – the fire place on an extended deck into the swamp.
